I already own The Troop, and An English Ghost Story was added to my wish-list in the fall. I've added Cuckoo Song, and now I just need to
Speaking of chills, we have had a very cold January. This weekend looks set to be another very cold - bitterly cold - few days. Our low on Monday is supposed to be around -29c when I put Graham on the school bus. Many of the mornings are in the -20c range, and we often don't get above -10c during the day. I really want to hide out when it's like this, and that's exactly my plan for this weekend. Hibernation and reading. That's what I've been doing for most of January, though I had expected to blog more. I have also been making a slow return to work since mid-January, and this has been sooner than I expected. It upset me enough that I haven't been able to blog while I adjust. So sorry about that, as I did have some posts planned, but the return to work sent everything from my mind. The joys of anxiety.....
I have read some very good books though in January, so I hope to blog about them soon. Meanwhile, it's hunker down and enjoy the fact I have a lovely home and a reading corner (see my blog header photo) and all the errands are done, so I can truly read as much as I want - and stay warm in cosy socks and comfortable home clothes, drink tea, and eat popcorn. Pleasure!!! I hope you have a lovely weekend with some good books lined up to read, too. Plus there's the Superbowl game on Sunday.....
What are you reading? What's your winter been like so far? Are you longing for spring yet? I am. On the few days that we get above -10c, it feels so balmy. I could get used to a winter warm like that!
